[1992-03-28-SMW-TV] Tim Horner feature

Recommended Posts

Meet Tim Horner: Renaissance Man. This was laid on thick. In addition to being amazing at everything he has ever done athletically, he is also a brilliant singer. The feature transitions to him singing "Shameless" by Garth Brooks. He's not terrible, but really? Kind of an obnoxious segment, but a good time capsule.

 

Shameless indeed.

I thought this was awesomely bad, especially since the only one they did was for Horner. The singing never fails to make me laugh.

I like Horner as an undercard face. Not top of the card Horner. We focused on the music, I wonder it ending on shameless was a rib. I couldn't believe they were pushing the Hawk pinfall from the early 80's.

Honestly thought the first part with the athletic accomplishments and some local charity work highlights was perfectly nice in a cheesy regional wrestling profile sort of way. But the last few minutes was so ridiculous. Ridiculous.

Dated and cheesy doesn't even begin to describe how bad this segment is. Great terrible segment. Tim Horner can sing though.

Tim Horner is not only a volunteer probation officer who dabbled as a jobber in the WWF and NWA, he can sing to Garth Brooks. I know this made him a babyface in the south in 1992, but that is not the case in New York in 2013.

All-American high school football player. U.S. Junior Heavyweight champion. Defeater of Road Warrior Hawk. Country superstar. How did this guy NOT get over as SMW's #1 babyface? Is it because the voiceover had more charisma than him?

Oh wow. A video package on TIM HORNER. A great clip of Tim in the studio laying down some vocals. Just incredible. How could you not cheer for Tim Horner after this? SHAMELESS!

An incredibly cheesy personality profile on 'one of the most popular stars in Smoky Mountain'. He's been an outstanding athlete all of his life, a four year defensive back All-American, a US Jr. champion, a co-holder of the National and UWF tag team titles and his biggest win was over Hawk on TBS. He's wrestled in the WWF and the NWA amongst others, is a voluntary probation officer and also an accomplished singer and musician. This then segues into Horner singing some country song.

 

Christ, was this something! There clearly trying to give Horner a pretty substantial push but this does him no favours. Definitely falls into the category of so bad it's good!

By Big Two standards, this may have been bad. By SMW standards, this was actually very good and hit just about everything you'd want in a top babyface. The thing you come away with here is that he's still the boy next door who can relate to not only his fans, but his neighbors, which in his case might be the same thing. He's a better singer than Jeff Jarrett was as Double J from what I can remember, and his athletic accomplishments mean much more to the actual intended audience than they ever would to us Yearbook watchers. Plus, we know Tim's push tanked, which colors everything involved in it badly.

 

I didn't know Tim had actually pinned Hawk; I'm guessing this was on TBS. I wonder why Dusty didn't at least give him a push toward, if not a run with, the TV title after that.

Tim Horner can't sing.  Haha - Funny and Terrible.  I can't believe they let him sound so flat - they could have edited it to just show the parts he was on pitch or something... too funny.  #WhiteLightnin' - But yeah, so bad it's good for sure!

Not a bad singer at all.  Only thing missing was his own personality instead of just trying to ape Garth Brooks.  Shocking that he would have trouble with that I know.  Sings kind of like he wrestles, perfectly competent but without any kind of charisma or spark.

Also, apparently Tim Horner has his own recording studio.
